how rechargeables should be,
This review is from: Sanyo Eneloop AAA 4 Pack Batteries (Electronics)
Simply the best rechargeable batteries I have ever used.
Two main positive points:
1. (more important for me) They can sustain high current drains over long periods of time. When it says 800 mAh, it actually means 800 mAh, even at 500 mA draining - it will run until it's flat. (Using its AA cousin, I have a camera that drains so much current and is so finicky about voltage, that it won't run 5 minutes with any other batteries - alkaline batteries can't bear the load, NiMH batteries drop below 1.4 V within seconds because of the load.)
2. It retains charge for weeks as opposed to days with normal NiMH batteries. I regularly used these in low-drain devices for months without problems.
Overall, in most applications I found them to be more lasting than other rechargeable batteries with 2x the nominal capacity.
